Botox® Treatments in Lakewood Colorado
This anti-aging injectable Treatment can be used as a medical and cosmetic treatment. Not only can it smooth wrinkles on the upper half of the face, but it can also be used to treat some medical conditions. It is a neuromodulator, and its active ingredient is a neurotoxin, a highly purified protein called botulinum toxin A that works on the muscular level to relax muscles to combat the signs of aging and alleviate pain and discomfort.
Once injected into a muscle, the injectable’s active ingredient blocks communication between nerve signals and the muscles so that they no longer contract. When the muscles remain relaxed, wrinkles and fine lines disappear, providing excellent wrinkle reduction. Aside from relaxing the muscles to promote anti-aging benefits, Botox also alleviates pain and discomfort, including providing migraine relief, alleviating TMJ pain, and resolving hyperhidrosis.
Botox® Cosmetic Uses: Treating Wrinkles and Fine Lines
Wrinkles that appear on the upper half of the face, including the forehead, between the brows, and at the outer corners of the eyes, typically form from a combination of thinning skin and repetitive muscle movements over time.
As you age, collagen and elastin loss and decreased hyaluronic acid content in the skin contribute to weaker skin, which begins to have less tolerance for expressions. Lines form when the skin can’t bounce back as easily, but Botox injections can smooth these wrinkles and fine lines to restore youthful-looking skin.
It’s a versatile cosmetic treatment that is FDA-approved to effectively treat lines and wrinkles on the forehead, frown lines between the brows, and crow’s feet around the eyes.
Wrinkle Reduction And Wrinkle Removal
This injectable is both prescriptive and preventative. Botox treats existing wrinkles and fine lines and is, therefore, a wrinkle removal treatment. It is also a form of wrinkle reduction as it relaxes the muscles to soften the expressions, which helps prevent the formation of new or deeper lines.
Aside from its well-known role as an anti-aging treatment, Botox also has some medical uses. When injected into specific muscles, it can treat and alleviate pain and discomfort associated with specific muscular-related conditions. It can also resolve hyperhidrosis, a condition in which patients chronically and excessively sweat, typically from the underarms. It’s an effective way to experience migraine relief and alleviate TMJ pain.
Patients who experience frequent migraines often try different prescription medications to relieve their pain. Migraine pain can be debilitating, and many patients have found it successful, as injections into specific muscles in the head can help alleviate pain. If you’re suffering from migraine pain and want migraine relief, injections with this injectable may be the treatment option that successfully reduces or eliminates migraines so that you can enjoy an improved quality of life.
TMJ treatment with it targets tense muscles in and around the jaw contributing to TMJ pain. Injecting this neuromodulator into the muscles responsible for tension and pain causes the muscles to relax, which alleviates pain and discomfort. If you’ve tried different treatment options to resolve TMJ pain, using this cosmetic injectable may be what you need to finally experience true and lasting relief.
Hyperhidrosis is a condition defined by excessive sweating. This profuse sweating can come from the armpits, the hands, or the feet. It most commonly affects patients’ underarm area; even strong antiperspirants cannot successfully resolve this condition. However, it has proven to be an effective solution for hyperhidrosis, and injections into some specific areas of the armpit will block sweat glands and, in doing so, eliminate excessive sweating. This is good news for those whose confidence and self-image have been affected by this condition.

Regardless of whether you want to address wrinkles and lines on the upper half of your face or use Botox treatment to resolve medical conditions, the treatment process is virtually the same. It begins with a consultation during which we will evaluate your desired treatment areas, learn more about your medical background, and confirm that this cosmetic injectable is a safe treatment option for you.
What To Expect From Your Treatment

Depending on what area you choose to treat, whether you want to use injectable for cosmetic purposes, medical purposes, or both, we will administer a strategic and precise number of injections into the muscles in the treatment area with the necessary number of units to help you reach your goals. The treatment takes less than 20 minutes to complete, and you can resume your normal daily activities once it is over.

Common side effects of Botox may include temporary bruising, redness, or swelling at the injection site. Other possible side effects can include headaches, dry mouth, flu-like symptoms, or drooping of the eyelid or eyebrow. Serious side effects are rare but can occur. It’s important to discuss potential side effects with your healthcare provider.
Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after receiving Botox injections. However, your healthcare provider may advise you to avoid strenuous exercise, excessive heat or cold, and massaging the treated area for a short period following the treatment.
Botox injections are generally well tolerated, and any discomfort experienced is usually minimal. The needles used for Botox injections are very fine, and some healthcare providers may apply a topical numbing cream or ice to minimize any potential pain or discomfort.
Botox works by blocking nerve signals in the muscles where it is injected. This prevents the muscles from contracting, which helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and lines on the skin.
The effects of Botox typically last for about three to six months. After this period, the muscle activity gradually returns, and the wrinkles may reappear. Regular maintenance treatments are usually required to sustain the desired results.
The cost of Botox can vary depending on factors such as the number of areas being treated, the provider’s recommendations.
